My Last Christmas Card...I Think!

Hi Everyone,
Just a quick post today. I have another Christmas card for you today. I think this will be the last Christmas card design for the year. I am going to make about 12 cards from this design and that should be it . I am closing the list! This is a quick and easy card. Take a look.

I used a Cuttlebug folder , cut the piece to size and layered. I added a pretty ribbon, some gems, and a sentiment from My Sentiments Exactly. Cs: Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip from Stampin' Up. Ink: Chocolate Chip from SU and a metallic gold to add color to the sentiment tag. Here are some detail shots.

Challenges for Christmas Holly:

Simon Says Stamps: NO Red or Green

Aud Sentiments: Use "Happy Holidays"

ABC-Challenge: J is for Jewels and gems

Paper Pals Art: FashionInspiration Photo

If the Shoe Fits: Texture

Told you this would be a quickie. I got most of my Christmas cards in the mail yesterday. I will hand deliver some to my neighbors too. You have a great day. Oh, we have snow here today. Not much. Just enough to make everything all white and pretty.
